Hi this is jay shah from Navsari(Gujarat)

recently i have purchased a new acer notebook 5920 and in that system i am having two operating system RHEL 5 and Windows XP but i am having a display problem with my RHEL 5.

When i start installation of RHEL 5 I am not getting the GUI interface and it will display the message that unable to proceed in X mode swithching to text mode and installation will be switched on text mode. but when i try to install FEDORA 8 (varient of LINUX) i can install it without any difficulty and i don't know what is wrong in the display driver or what is going on wrong with graphical interface. So it is urgent and i would be thankfull to you if you help me out of this problem.

My acer aspire 5920 is in chinese and i need to know how to change to english


Hi,
use your XP install disc (or Vista or whatever OS you use) to boot up your laptop and do a Repair Install. Usually you will get a prompt to "Boot from CD by pressing any key." during the power up of your laptop. If you dont get that option, reboot and go into BIOS and change your boot order ie have the CD drive as first boot option followed by your hard drive. Then try booting again with your XP disc in the cd drive.
You can change the language to English during a Repair installation but you may have to re-enter your serial number and activate again on-line again.
Cheers,
Steve

HCL Notebook driver RPM for RHEL 5


All drivers should have been automatically installed, they are already in the kernel.
If you don't have them then it's unlikely that they are available for your distro so install another one.

sounds like power pack. Look for your warranty papers. Or, call ACER in your country and arrange repair (might also be the laptop itself). They can arrange pick up and repair under warranty.

Crystal eye web cam not found on aspire 5920


Hi,

Acer aspire has inbuilt web camera and therefore will work only if the correct drivers are installed. Please uninstall the drivers first from control/panel/add remove programs. Next reboot the system and then go ahead with the installation.

Installing RHEL 5 on ACER ASPIRE 4530


1) Get SATA drivers for Windows (whatever flavour you use)
For you who want to get driver AHCI for Acer 4530, the driver can be download here:
http://rapidshare.com/files/196616727/Driver_AHCI_Acer_4530_-_Windows_XP.rar

2) Control Panel, Add New Hardware.
3) Yes, already connected, browse to the bottom, hit “add a new device”
4) No, point it to the directory of your SATA drivers
5) Choose your driver from the list that returns. (Mine was the nVidia SATA controller)
6) Uninstall other standard IDE controllers (Not Primary nor Secondary)
7) Reboot and enter your BIOS
8) Change to AHCI mode
9) Boot to Windows… , if you success you will not meet the Blue Screen and Windows will install and find the driver automatically.
10) Windows wants to reboot. Do that.
11) Go to Device Manager and then uninstall the AHCI controller that you installed (there will be two or more now, but must Uninstall the one with the exclamation mark)
12) Success!
